I didn't see you say what is wrong with it. I can imagine a gear motor wearing out fairly fast if they didn't get the gear spacing quite right. Or if the over-current protection isn't good, then the windings might short in a way that gives less power (but this seems unlikely). I once worked on a program where we tried to demagnitize the magnets in a brushless motor without any success at all. We would lock the rotor and use the windings as heaters.
